  • Mossyard Farm Pottery


    Mossyard Farm Pottery

    is a new paint it yourself studio based on Mossyard Farm, a working beef and sheep farm running 110 cows and 650 sheep. With beautiful views of Fleet bay and within two minutes walk of one of Scotland’s most picturesque beaches the studio itself can seat up to 16 people and is an ideal idea for children’s parties, groups, get together or to simply drop by and paint something unique as a keepsake or a gift to give to someone else.

    Ceramic Painting

    Choose a piece of blank pottery from our large selection, paint and decorate your piece using stamps, sponges, shape tools and much much more! Take a look at our ideas book before choosing your brushes, tools and colours. It takes up to two hours to paint your pottery, and for groups we provide free tea, coffee and home baking. When you have completed your piece of pottery leave it with us to be glazed, and fired in the kiln ready for collection in 4 days time. If you’re not able to collect, we may be able to deliver locally, or we can arrange to post your pottery direct to your chosen address.

    If you are in a rush or would just prefer to take something away on the day there are certain pieces of pottery such as figurines and money boxes that can be painted using acrylic paint allowing you to take it away as soon as it is dry. Please note that anything painted in acrylic paint is NOT food and dishwasher safe.

    While you’re at Mossyard Farm Pottery, enjoy a picnic on our beautiful beach. Or the closest place for lunch is Laggan Outdoor Base Camp cafe, just a mile away.

    Clay Hand and Foot Prints (and Paw Prints too…)

    Imprints provide a wonderful keepsake to be treasured for years to come. We take an original impression of your baby or child’s hand and/or foot print in soft clay. After the imprint has been taken it needs to be left to dry out naturally taking up to two weeks before being fired in the kiln for the first time. It is then painted, glazed and re-fired in the kiln ready for collection. We can also take imprints of your dog’s paws. The total time from taking the imprint to collection is around 4 weeks. Prices start from £15, with options to have your imprint framed.

    Parties

    Mossyard Farm Pottery is the perfect venue for children’s birthday parties. Come along to do some painting, we will decorate the studio for you to enjoy a painting party! Different party packages are available depending on your requirements.

     
     
  • A’ The Airts


     

    A’ The Airts in the Royal Burgh of Sanquhar is a Community Arts and Crafts centre nestled in the heart of Upper Nithsdale, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.

    Our fully accessible building is a hub where individuals can meet and express their creativity. Our varied groups who use the centre also love the warm and welcoming atmosphere here. Locals and tourists alike can enjoy great refreshments and free wi-fi in our café.

    Here at A’ The Airts we are providing a platform for local artists and crafters to sell their works either in our shop or during exhibitions held in the Gallery. Our shop has a wide variety of crafts available, many of which use the Sanquhar patterns (some items are only sold here).

    https://www.sanquharknits.com

    Our shop is a great place to browse unique Sanquhar Pattern goods – some not sold anywhere else – and a superb variety of wares from local crafters.

    We have a theatre that can seat a maximum of 50 individuals, suitable for small productions, performances and talks. It is equipped with a projector, for presentations and is used as a community cinema. The seats are retractable, so that the space can be easily opened up for other uses. Tai Chi, and playgroups, parties and conferences have all used this space.

    The theatre doubles as a gallery and we have further exhibition space throughout the building. We generally have many exhibitions throughout the year both by amateur and professional alike and we are always pleased to hear from groups or individuals who would like to consider the space for future exhibitions.

    We have two craft rooms, which our local community arts and crafts groups use on a weekly basis. The groups currently include pottery, photography, poetry, knitting, patchwork. The larger of the two rooms has a kiln for pottery and a potter’s wheel. The smaller of the two rooms is an ideal space for meetings.
